Major Pettigrew's Last Stand
Widowed, retired Major Pettigrew leads a quiet conservative life in a picturesque English village, until the death of his brother throws him out of his routine and he finds himself falling for the also widowed owner of the village shop, Mrs Ali. The traditions of Mrs Ali's Pakistani family and the Major's own upbringing (and the annual production at the golf club) form significant barriers to their true feelings... will love conquer all?
Very nice. Very Alexander McCall Smith.
